How To Make (or Break) Your Next Meeting

Meetings are where you can make your mark and impress your coworkers, or where you can crash and burn.

For most people, preparation is the key to a successful meeting. That includes preparing for things to avoid. According to Forbes there are a handful of things that could kill your performance the next time you’re holding court in front of coworkers.

For example, showing up unprepared. Some people aren’t good with time management or they think just winging it will make them seem more casual and easygoing. Either way when you don’t have a clear train of thought people will know. And if you can’t be bothered to prepare, why should they be bothered to care?

Something else to avoid: making excuses for your question. Don’t start by asking if you can ask a question or by saying “this may be a dumb question.” Instead have confidence and get the answers you need.
